Ruth has been working in Melbourne for the last 13 years, with experience ranging from small inner city gardens to large country estates and commercial projects. We pride ourselves in our ability to work with clients to create a garden that is a unique reflection of their tastes and lifestyle. As a result our gardens are as varied as our clients. Ruth designs gardens throughout Victoria, Australia and New Zealand and has a strong focus on environmentally sustainable design.
Her landscape designs have been featured in a number of publications including ‘Outdoor Design and Living’ and she has written articles on water sustainability issues for 'Backyard Design Ideas' and 'Landscape Outlook..
She has a strong interest in sustainability. Including reusing materials, using recycled materials where suitable and making sure that there is limited wasted materials during the construction phase.
She is also interested in early childhood development and this interest is reflected in her playspace design.
Ruth has also tutored at University of Melbourne for the Landscape Architecture department and is a guest speaker at many different community events.
